THIS IS THE EntreLeague

Last year we asked a panel of experts from disparate companies and organisations in the area, to choose the leading, most interesting entrepreneurial companies. The choices then feed into EntreLeague, which we reveal during the live event…

Once our panel of experts have chosen our 2022 EntreLeague. We’ll run the full list here and in Bristol Life and Bath Life.
